About me

I am a fully qualified and MBACP registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Bereavement Counsellor. I offer short term counselling and open ended psychotherapy to adults of all ages from my practice in Shoreditch, East London.

You may in the midst of a crisis, seeking resolution for a particular difficulty or feeling unhappy with your life. I am a warm, compassionate and empathic therapist with an individual approach to therapy. I can provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space where you can unpack your thoughts and feelings and consider their meanings.

I offer a free 10 minute phone consultation & am happy to answer any questions you may have

How I Work

I use an Integrative model with a focus on Psychodynamic Therapy. The Integrative Model draws on elements from different therapeutic approaches, which enables me to tailor therapy to your needs.

Psychodynamic Therapy aims to assist you in resolving your existing or historic difficulties through working with you to bring your unconscious mind and thoughts into conscious awareness. Psychodynamic theory holds the view that the mind conceals or retains feelings or memories which may be too painful or difficult for the conscious mind to process.

I aim to assist you in exploring your past experiences and relationships, and allow you to gain more clarity and insight into any difficulties you may be facing. Therapy can offer you the opportunity to unravel, experience and understand your feelings, memories and experiences more fully in order to resolve them, ultimately allowing you to live a life that is more connected, real and meaningful.

I am experienced in working with a wide range of life issues, such as -

  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Depression
  • Loss & Bereavement
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Family Difficulties
  • Affairs and betrayals
  • Phobias

Getting Started With Therapy

Beginning the process of therapy can be frightening, and I deeply value the courage it takes to make that first call. Please feel free to ring me for a free 10 minute phone consultation, and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you wished to proceed with therapy, we would arrange an initial meeting, which would give you the chance to explore your current or historic difficulties in more depth & think about what you may wish to gain from coming to therapy.

I aim to respond to any enquiries within 12 hours

Loss & Bereavement

I am an experienced Bereavement Counsellor and understand that grief and loss deeply impact many aspects of life. I understand the powerful and difficult feelings grief has on your entire life. If you have lost someone recently or in the past, I can assist you in working through your feelings.


Depression, loneliness and isolation can be debilitating, controlling and at some points crippling, leaving you with a lack of energy or enjoyment for life. I am experienced in working with these issues, and can work with you to explore your feelings of sadness, be with you during your times of darkness as well as share in your happiness and times of light.


When we experience Anxiety, we are not only struggling to feel in control of our emotions, feelings, worries and fears, but also trying to manage our physical sensations as well. Anxiety can be that cramping feeling we get in the pit of our stomach that can stop you in your tracks. Anxiety can occur for a wide variety of reasons. I can work with you to understand the reasons behind your Anxiety, and offer you practical ways of managing it.
